Speechless is not Burns’ first autobiographical book. His first comic, Detached, follows James’ experience as a visual artist who was suddenly confronted by the very real fear of blindness after suffering a detached retina. It’s not a medical story so much as a psychological one, involving fear, death, faith, and hope. Detached is a very personal story, but one that James was uniquely qualified to tell.

DETACHED – Written and Illustrated by James Burns, Detached is a 28 page comic book in glorious black & white and can be purchased here for $3.00.
